Lara: I'm Not Just Better, I'm 150% Better Than Canelo!

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBA 'regular' junior welterweight champion Erislandy Lara (19-1-2, 12KOs) does not believe Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (43-1-1, 31KOs) is on his level. They are going to clash this coming Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The fight will headline a four fight card on Showtime Pay-Per-View.

Lara has chased after Canelo for over a year. Now he has him.  The Cuban boxer wants to prove that his country produces a higher quality of fighters in comparison to the boxers coming out of Mexico.

They have two common opponents, with Canelo doing far better against Alfredo Angulo and Lara dominating Austin Trout, who nearly defeated the Mexican star last April.

"Originally I thought he would never take the fight because I confronted him in person and he said, 'No this is not how you make fights.'  Then after the fans saw that he was ducking me on Twitter, he had no choice but to be a man and take the challenge. [Beating Canelo] means everything to me.  For me to demonstrate to the world that I'm not just better than him, but that I'm 150 percent better than him, means everything to me.  Like I said before, I'm going to take him to Cuban school," Lara said.

Lara is a great fighter but his trash talk is boring and not only that, it's actually Luis DeCubas. You can't compare him to Mayroga - Mayorga didn't have no damn twitter, he would smoke a cigarette, drink a beer,…
